Instructor Highlight: David Brancato

David retired from the Clifton, New Jersey Police Department in 2012 after 34 years of distinguished service. During his last 10 years of service, he was assigned as the Clifton Police Department’s Range Master. David is one of the founding members of the Tactical Response Team, which was formed in 1983, and on which he served as an Operator, Team Leader, and the team’s lead Firearms and Tactics Instructor. As one of the original adjunct instructors with Heckler & Koch’s International Training Division from 1990 through 2002, he trained law enforcement and military personnel throughout the country. We are honored that he has been an instructor with Team One Network since its inception.

As if all that was not enough, Dave has taken the lead role in managing the Benelli and Ruger armorer courses and has taught a wide variety of courses including Tactical Team Operations, Rapid Response Workshops, Shoot House Instructor, and Range Master. He has participated in presentations for IALEFI, ILEETA, AFTE, the NRA, and conducted the first online Benelli Armorer recertification.

Dave is a Charter Awardee of the Team One Network “Make it Happen” Award. Without Dave’s commitment and devotion, Team One Network would not be able to maintain the level of professionalism that allows us to be leaders in the field of Law Enforcement Training.
